  • Introducing... Zalto Glassware 18/08/2017

     

    Zalto Glassware

     

    We are now so delighted to be able to offer the incredible Zalto “Denk-Art” wine glasses and decanters.

    This is an amazing new range of mouth-blown Austrian glasses and decanters of a quality we have never before encountered. The remarkably beautiful Zalto glasses are made from lead-free crystal which results in a surreal lightness and a surprising durability. They rarely cloud despite repeated dishwasher usage and they are very flexible (the secret to their surprising strength). Dishwasher safe and strong = a win in our books!

    These are not simply objects d’art to be admired from a distance but are also very functional glasses that can be used every day.

    Which is a must for us!

    From the moment you pick up a Zalto glass, the beauty, the finesse and the balance of the glass in the hand speaks of the quality of the craftsmanship and the lead-free crystal from which they are made. They are wonderful glasses to taste from as they were designed specifically for this purpose by Austrian wine expert Hans Denk, who started with a vision to produce the ultimate wine tasting glasses.

    When designing the glasses Denk came upon the idea of utilising the same angles of the tilt of earth’s axis which resulted in a range of glasses that were not only strikingly original to look at but also allowed a very wide bowl width. This in turn enables the optimum surface space for a particular style of wine. The angular shape of the glasses also means that if a Zalto glass is knocked over, it tends to hit the strongest part of the glass first. A genius move if you ask us!

    Jancis Robinson: “... my current favourite glasses have taken me into a whole new territory of sensual pleasure. Zalto glasses…are hand-blown, do not contain lead oxide so do not get cloudy, and combine an angular bowl shape with the thinnest glass I have yet come across.”

    In December 2009 Stern magazine of Germany, conducted the most comprehensive and independent testing thus far of the world’s finest wine stemware. They invited the majority of the world’s quality glassware producers to submit their finest glasses and to join the professional judging panel. This subsequently included key representatives from all the glassware producers including George Riedel himself. The testing was in ‘blind’ conditions with judges both blindfolded and wearing gloves. The whole exercise was overseen by a high magistrate that had taken time from the bench to ensure the proceedings were fair and balanced. The judges tasted three wines out of 10 different glasses and the results were conclusive; Zalto glasses came first in all three wine style categories.

    We recommend these beautiful glasses, carafes and decanters to you without reservation. They are certainly the finest glassware that we have encountered.

  • Young Gun of Wine... Murdoch Hill's talented Winemaker 04/08/2017

    One of the wineries we've been following closely is  Adelaide Hills winery, Murdoch Hill. And now their winemaker, Michael Downer, has been awarded the Young Gun of Wine Award for 2017.

    We were first introduced to Murdoch Hill wines via a street party in Adelaide a couple of years ago. The wines were impressive and we got to chatting to Andrew Downer, marketing guru at Murdoch Hill and Michael's brother. One thing led to another and a few weeks later we were up in 'the shed' with a group of friends trying their spectacular drops plus barrel samples and chatting all things wine with the brothers. 

    After tying the award for 'Winemakers Choice' in 2015 and winning it outright in 2016, the next logical step was obviously to win the big one...

    Young Gun of Wine in 2017.

    Now we're happy to be ranging our favourites from their list and to be sharing the goodness that is Murdoch Hill with our winelovers! We love these wines and they are highly regarded by the guys from The Wine Front, who we source most of our reviews from, as well as the public with many of the 2016 wines already SOLD OUT! 

    You'll find links to the wines in our store below and please pop us an email if you'd like to know more. 

    From left to right we have the Murdoch Hill Chardonnay, Murdoch Hill Pinot Noir, Murdoch Hill Cronberry Syrah and Murdoch Hill The Tilbury Chardonnay. Click on the picture to go straight to the Wine Store!

  • Wines that Love a little Spice 03/11/2015

    With Summer just around the corner it's time to spice things up! Nothing beats a little chilli in a Thai Beef Salad or a Morroccan seasoning with kick on butterflied BBQ lamb. Some may say that finding a wine to suit can be a bit tricky but we have that all taken care of...

    It takes a luscious and aromatic wine to really handle the spice in a dish. Nothing too bold or too high in alcohol or tannins as that will only set your mouth on fire! Not literally but that is how it feels when you drink the wrong wine with spicy food.

    There are both whites and reds that are perfect for mixing with your Mexican, taking out to Thai, or serving with your best arrabiata, all you need to do is decide which wines you'd like to try.

    Here are our favourite wines that can handle a little heat in the kitchen!

    2015.11.10 Spice Things Up

     

    Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Prima Riesling 

    A beautiful delicate Riesling from the famous Pewsey Vale winemakers. The Prima (Donna) is a fabulous Riesling made in a semi-dry style with the grapes harvested earlier than the rest of the Rieslings. We can taste lots of exotic fruits which according to the winemaker include nectarine, lychee, peaches, white cherries and guava. The only thing that is for certain is that there never seems to be enough in the bottle! 

    Yalumba The Virgilius Viognier

    On a bright Spring day we arrived at Yalumba seeking a taste of their flagship Viognier. This fine wine has been given a very dramatic description by the winery... exotic, luscious, opulent, sexy, vivacious and vibrant! In our opinion they're completely correct - it's a seriously seductive white, The Virgilius definitely awoke our senses at the end of a long day of tasting.  It turns out that Yalumba's favourite Viognier is one of our favourites too.

    Bay of Fires Pinot Gris

    Pinot Gris is the 'it' wine right now and this Bay of Fires Pinot Gris is leading the way. Smooth is an understatement with gorgeous melon and peach flavours, wild ferment and a crisp acidity. Blah blah you say. Well then, listen when I say you won't be going back to your Marlborough Sav Blanc after trying this wine.  It's simply too delicious! The perfect wine for a relaxing afternoon in the sun.

    Tamar Ridge Pinot Noir

    Winner of the inaugural Wine Please Tasmanian Pinot Noir blind tasting and one of our favourite wines. The famous Tamar Ridge in Tasmania is the perfect place the grow the fruit to make delicious Pinot Noir wines. Whilst some Pinots can be very expensive... this particular drop provides excellent value for money. And it's really delicious with lots of different foods, in particular those delicious duck pancakes with Hoi Sin sauce. Nom Nom.  

    Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir

    Only 'The Best Pinot Noir in Australia' right here ladies and gentlemen. Delicious, winning awards all over the place and with a cool name like 'The Sabre' - this wine has the trifecta. And we love that it is made by a small family team in the Adelaide Hills determined to produce fine wines with an authentic brand. 

    There are so many great wines to pair with your spicy dishes, make sure you email us at hello@wineplease.com.au if you want us to try your favourites!

  • Six on the Sixth - Edition #1 22/10/2015

    6 On The 6th

     

    The year is racing away and believe it or not, crazy season is about to begin! So we've decided to keep it super simple and tell you about our "Six on the Sixth" to make your wine shopping easy. Now I know it is not the sixth today... Mrs WP has had a busy few weeks travelling interstate and tasting all of these gorgeous wines and didn'tm anage to update the blog on time! 

    These are six premium wines, all absolutely delicious and selected by us, at $50 below RRP

    Arras 

    Firstly, the stunning Tasmanian bubbles from House of Arras. This has quickly become on of our favourite sparklings and has a cult following in the industry. Made by Ed Carr who is a lovely guy and a genius winemaker. We think Arras is on a par with the top Champagne houses in France, delivering a delicious fine sparkle which is perfect for all occasions. If you need any reassurance, just look at the smiles on your guests faces as they take their first sip. 

    Vasse Felix Chardonnay

    Vasse Felix is a beautiful winery and has a simply amazing restaurant, above the cellar door and overlooking the vines. Their Heytesbury Chardonnay is the flagship, however this is absolutely divine and brilliant value for money given its pedigree. Pop on your over-sized sunnies, order a bottle of Chardy and a little something from the restaurant and let it be known that you are having a marvellous time down South darlings. 

    Pierro LTC Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

    Pierro is one of our favourite wineries in Margaret River and in fact the world. The cellar door is gorgeous and quaint and the wine is delicious. The Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend is classic Margaret River and Pierro’s LTC is definitely at the upper end of the scale in terms of fabulousness. Make sure this has a few minutes out of the fridge before serving to really blossom. And serve it with a fancy seafood dish for maximum effect. Love.

    Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir

    Only 'The Best Pinot Noir in Australia' right here ladies and gentlemen. Delicious, winning awards all over the place and with a cool name like 'The Sabre' - this wine has the trifecta. And we love that it is made by a small family team in the Adelaide Hills determined to produce fine wines with an authentic brand. 

    Catena Malbec

    Winner of the inaugural Wine Please steak night and Malbec taste-off. The Catena has undergone rigorous tasting by the team and we have fallen deeply in love. If you love Malbec skip straight to the food recommendation.  In fact, your steak is probably already on the BBQ. If you’re not a fan of Malbec then don’t expect a Barossa Shiraz, be open to the more understated and savoury flavours… and you’ll have a new BBQ companion.

    Bethany Shiraz

    We’ve had the pleasure of enjoying Bethany Shiraz for many years, with a few bottles being tucked away in Dad’s cellar. More recently we’ve been to visit their cellar door and seriously enjoyed the wines on offer. Classic Barossa Shiraz which is perfect by the fire in winter, shared at a BBQ or given as a gift to lovers of this iconic wine region.

  • Six on the Sixth - Edition #2 11/11/2015

    Bottom Image Mail Chimp

     

    Wine (much like this time of year) can be a little overwhelming! So we've decided to simplify things... Here are six delicious drops hand-picked by us and ready to be shipped to your door. 

    Welcome to Edition #2 of 'Six on the Sixth'

    Grosset Alea Riesling

    The Alea is the sweet little sister of the famous Polish Hill from Grosset. Perfectly balanced and off-dry, she's the girl you want to take out for date night in China Town. We love this Clare classic with spicy dishes and first enjoyed a bottle (or two) with an anniversary dinner at Mr Wong. Pour yourself a glass at your favourite Asian restaurant (only slightly chilled - not too cold) and bring on the spice!

    Brokenwood Semillon

    Hunter Semillon doesn't get any better than the wines made by Brokenwood. Like Grosset and Riesling, Brokenwood is the Queen of a Semillons. This is their entry level drop but is rated as Outstanding by those in the know. Perfect with seafood on a sunny day... it's Spring in a bottle.

    Tamar Ridge Pinot Noir

    Winner of the inaugural Wine Please Tasmanian Pinot Noir blind tasting and one of our favourite wines. The famous Tamar Ridge in Tasmania is the perfect place the grow the fruit to make delicious Pinot Noir wines. Whilst some Pinots can be very expensive... this particular drop provides excellent value for money. And it's really delicious with lots of different foods, in particular those delicious duck pancakes with Hoi Sin sauce. Nom Nom.  

    Chapel Hill Shiraz

    We love this wine and whenever we invite friends to try it they do too. It's no movie star with celebrity appeal but more like the girl next door who turns out to be a total babe. We like this wine and their beautiful winery so much that we got married at Chapel Hill so we (and our friends) could drink it all night long. Enough said.

    Turners Crossing Shiraz Viognier

    Shiraz Viognier is bang on trend and we think that Turners Crossing have a really delicious and unique example of this blend. This wine was literally delivered to our dinner table to try and has been a regular visitor even since. A smart wine. A conversation starter. And one of our top 10 wine discoveries for 2014. A great wine to take to a dinner party or to enjoy at your own little party!

    Zema Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

    Wine is meant to be classy and we love the Zema Estate Cabernet Sauvignon for just that reason. It's been called "neat, tidy, well flavoured and well mannered". What a find.The Zema is estate grown, hand-picked and released with several years of bottle age. Ridiculously drinkable.

  • Our day on the Barossa Valley Cheese and Wine Trail 02/05/2014

    Barossa Valley Cheese Co

    It was a beautiful sunny day just before the chill kicked in and we decided we would head up to the Barossa Valley to spend a day on a Barossa cheese and wine trail. Our first stop was the The Barossa Valley Cheese Co to pick up their trail map and some delicious supplies for the day. The map is fantastic, with four trails of wineries to choose from in North, South, East and West directions. The cheese pack is a functional little cooler bag bursting with four cheeses, a cheese knife, crackers and even a gorgeous little cheeseboard. Once we had our map and cheese we set off to find our first winery of the day.

     

    Barossa Trail Winery Logos

    We decided not to stick to any one trail as all of the wineries are really close together and we had a few that we particularly wanted to visit. These were; Two Hands Wines, Seppeltsfield, Langmeil and Peter Lehmann Wines.

    At each of the wineries the Barossa Valley Cheese Co have chosen a wine and then carefully selected a cheese which perfectly complements that wine. And they have done a fantastic job creating flavour matches which are surprising and delicious.

     At Two Hands Wines the Brilliant Disguise Moscato was a slightly sweet and spritzy wine, matched with a Vache Curd - a cow's milk curd that is subtle, creamy and soft. It was a  very morish match we didn't expect and a fantastic start to the day. If you're a Moscato drinker definitely try a subtle curd with your tipple next time - it's amazing!

    Our next stop was the Seppeltsfield winery where we were recommended to sample the Solero DP38 Rich Rare Venerable, which is a medium 'sherry', matched with the Cheddar. We are major sherry fans and this was an absolutely wicked pairing. There was definitely no DP38 left after the tasting and we almost ate the entire piece of cheddar! 

    Two Hands and Seppeltsfield Trail

    Langmeil is one of our all time favourite wineries and we sell lots of gorgeous Langmeil wines here at Wine Please. It was such a great experience to spend some time at the cellar door, perched up at the tasting bar with our little cheese board and cheese. The chosen wine was the High Road Chardonnay matched with a creamy Camembert. Needless to say that was not the last wine we tried there, with the 2012 Valley Floor Shiraz just released (it's amazing!) and a number of aged Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignons open just by chance... we love our job!

    The final stop was Peter Lehmann Wines where there are so many wines to try. We started with the cheese and wine match and then moved on to try more of their wines. Our favourites were the Peter Lehmann H&V Chardonnay and H&V Sauvignon Blanc which were promptly added to our range here at Wine Please. To top off our day the Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz was also available for tasting and was the perfect end to a fun day on the trail. 

    Barossa -wine -and -cheese

    This was a really fun way to structure a trip around the Barossa and it was a fantastic talking point as we popped our cheeseboard up on the tasting bench and enjoyed a little cheese with our wines. I can't believe we didn't think to do it before really. The wineries love it too and give you 'extra' sized tastings of the wines that are matched with the cheese. We found the service at all of the wineries to be exceptional and they definitely took extra special care of us because we were on the trail. We highly recommend the Barossa Valley Cheese Co cheese and wine trail to anyone who loves visiting cellar doors, drinking wine and eating cheese. Which is everyone we know!

     

    Bon Voyage!

    Mr & Mrs WP

  • Red, white, sparkling or fabulous? 21/03/2014

    Fabulous Cocktails for a Wine Lovers Wedding

    This summer in the McLaren Vale we had the pleasure of hosting a big party, also known as our wedding! Naturally, one of our top priorities was to make sure we served fabulous drinks and in particular, quality wines. The Retreat at Chapel Hill, known for it's delicious McLaren Vale Shiraz, was the perfect vineyard venue with a beautiful terrace, great wines and lots of space for dancing.

     

    The Retreat 

     

    To get the party started we wanted to serve wine-based cocktails in addition to the usual 'red, white or sparkling' on offer. After many evenings of dedicated "research" we decided on two simple cocktails, which would be eye-catching, delicious and easy to serve during the busy reception. 

    Firstly, we decided to mix up the usual sparkling by alternating every third glass with a Kir Royale. This is the classic blend of Creme de Cassis and Champagne or Sparkling Wine.  Not only does the Kir Royale taste divine, but it's also a stunning violet colour, sparking conversations and smiles across the terrace.

     

    Kir Royale

    Kir Royale

    (single glass)

    10mL of Creme de Cassis 

    90mL of Champagne (or sparkling white wine if you like)

     

    To maximise the summer wedding vibe we also served a Red Sangria instead of red wine before sunset. Although it was unseasonably cool and a little bit sprinkly, the Red Sangria was fabulous. Chapel Hill's Tempranillo was the perfect base for the Sangria, as the variety used in the traditional Spanish Rioja and Sangria recipes. We also decided to serve the Tempranillo along with the Shiraz after sunset, with lots of happy guests loving the lighter red option.

     

    Sangria 2

    Red Sangria

    (6-8 glasses)

    1 bottle of Tempranillo

    100mL Brandy

    500mL Lemonade

    4 oranges and 2 lemons peeled and diced

    2 apples core removed and diced (not peeled)

    2 peaches sliced (when in season)

    Garnish with berries or pomegranate seeds


    With 'Signature Cocktails' trending in wedding planning blogs across the globe, the Kir Royale and Red Sangria were definitely an understated splash of colour for a summer vineyard wedding ... and boy did they get the party started! 

    Cheers!

  • To Speak with a Plumm in your mouth 06/12/2013

    Plumm Box      Fancy but not full-of-it wine glasses       Plumm Logo

    We are completely in love with the Plumm wine glass range. This Melbourne brand is the first Australian company to make varietal specific wine glasses - you know, the ones that match the type of wine you're drinking. And believe us, it really does improve the smell and flavour of your wine... but how many different shapes do you really need?

    We have the entire range of another brand of varietal specific glasses, but do you think we can ever find the 'perfect' one when we go to pour a wine? No. There are millions of them and they're in cupboards all over the house. There is no doubt that a wine tastes so much better out of the right glass, but could this process of finding the right glass whilst our guests wait patiently *thinking we're being total wine ponces* please be a little easier!

    Enter Plumm. We've fallen hard for these gorgeous glasses in their beautiful boxes and the fancy but not full-of-it brand personality. Oh and they're Aussie - yay!

    "To speak with a plum in your mouth indicates pomp, extravagance and class. To speak with a Plumm in your mouth means simplicity, elegance and glass."

    Plumm have worked tirelessly with wine makers, wine judges, sommeliers and wine writers to develop their gorgeous varietal specific glass shapes. And excitingly their research shows that 5 glass types are all you need! 

    Plumm Glassware

     

     - Plumm Glassware in the Wine Store -

     In their own words "Plumm crystal wine glasses are functional, practical and beautiful and represent great value for money. They are worthy of any special occasion, yet also allow the enjoyment of premium glassware on a daily basis"

    And that is what we're all about at Wine Please, great wine and great glassware as part of your everyday life.

     

    Cheers! Mr & Mrs WP

  • Wine Club 17/11/2013

    Who's in your Wine Club?

    We're into drinking wine with our friends... 

     There are of course the Wine Clubs you join where you are sent fabulous wines frequently. Like ours here (shameless self-promotion). But what we want to talk about today is the casual get togethers with friends for the purpose of drinking wine. Not down the pub, second wine on the list, four glasses thanks... but actually making a point of bringing a good bottle and having a bit of chat about the wine whilst solving the world's problems and being generally hilarious etc. 

    We make a point of doing this weekly (in reality fortnightly) with our friends and it's SO.MUCH.FUN. There's a Lawyer in the group so there is an entire archive of rules which are amended weekly which I won't go in to, our general plan is this: 

    1) A specific variety from a specific region is nominated

    This usually occurs via work email earlier in the week i.e. Coonawarra Cab Sav.

    2) Everyone brings their bottle in a paper bag and takes the lid off themselves

    Krispy Kreme bags that you borrowed from the 7-Eleven on the way are perfectly acceptable just as long as nobody can see the wine label.

    Wine Club Blind Tasting

    3) The host pours a taste of each wine for each person 

    This can be tricky - you need lots of glasses but having the wines side by side to see, smell and taste is important. If you can't do this then pour very small amounts otherwise nobody is concentrating by the third wine.

    4) We try not to talk about the wine for a few minutes at the start whilst we look, smell, taste and list them from favourite to least favourite

    This is the only remotely serious part but it's quite important, otherwise someone says 'liquorice' and all you can smell is liquorice in all of the wines.

    5) We tally our votes and the winner is announced

    6) The host says which wine is from which bottle and everyone declares which is theirs

    7) General shenanigans

    The best part is that people always vote for different wines. Of course the wines have all been scored by various 'wine critics' but there seems to be little correlation between the 97 point wine winning and the 93 point wine not winning. It's awesome and just reinforces the fact that your opinion and whether you personally like a wine or not is truly the most important thing. 

    Here are the results of our Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Club:

    1st Majella 2009 

    This is mouth-watering. The whole table just goes mmmmmm when they taste this Majella goodness.

    2nd Balnaves 2010 

    A dark horse. Dark and delicious. An awesome surprise too.

    Equal 3rd = Yalumba Menzies 2006 and St Hugo 2012

    The age difference between the Menzies and the rest of the crowd really stood out. It's fantastic when someone brings a bottle of something they've been holding on to. A good friend!

    Coonawarra Cab Sav

     

    And most recently we all brought a bottle of Margaret River Chardonnay along. This was really interesting and showed us how different people really do prefer different types of Chardonnay. 

    An absolute standout, the winner was the Stella Bella Chardonnay 2010. This is going to be our wine of the summer. Ridiculously good value too. Second and third was the Voyager Chardonnay from 2009 and 2005 respectively. For the first time we had the same wine from different vintages, this is the beauty of a Wine Club where we really truly don't cheat and tell each other what we're bringing!! And third was the Devil's Lair 2012 Chardonnay which was probably served a bit cold and really improved as we were all chatting away. 

    Margaret River Chardonnay

    So... if you're getting together and drinking wine with your friends, we totally recommend the Majella and the Stella Bella. Oh, and that you get the fearless leader of your group to nominate a specific wine and try the blind tasting thing. It is really very very good fun.

    Mr and Mrs WP

  • A Day in the Barossa 03/11/2013

    One of the best parts of our jobs as Mr and Mrs WP is travelling to taste wines. We get to see the beautiful vineyards, meet the makers of our amazing wines and chat to the people at the cellar door. Our first 'Wine Tour' follows in the footsteps of the trip we took just a few weeks ago around the Barossa Valley in South Australia. It was a fantastic day and we managed to squeeze in 5 awesome wineries. It was the beginning of the new season and the bud burst was so cool to see.

    Barossa-Valley-Vineyard

    If you're headed to the Barossa we've included a map and the details of the wineries we visited below. We have also included the details of a few other great Barossa cellar doors nearby which you should visit if you have time.

    We started the day at Kellermeister (A) who make delicious wines including a mouth-watering Black Sash Shiraz, a Rascally Rabbit Rose and a delicious Eiswein (ice wine) which we have since featured in our store. Delicious.

    We then continued down the road to Rockford (B) who have a gorgeous rustic cellar door and some amazing wines which they sell direct to visitors. Our third stop was at Artisans of Barossa (C) which you really have to see to believe. It's a shared cellar door for 7 different wineries in the Barossa with a fantastic cafe overlooking the vines. We feature the wines from Teusner and Sons of Eden on our list which are absolutely yum. 

    Barossa-Wine-Tour

    The afternoon was spent at Hentley Farm (D) where Danny and the team have a stunning cellar door and an award-winning restaurant. We sat in the gorgeous lounge room and tasted the range of wines being produced by this boutique, single-estate winery. The Beauty and The Beast are absolute knockouts and we can't get enough of their Cab Sav and Shiraz as the BBQ season kicks off. 

    Our final stop was at Yalumba (E) where we tasted a range of Viognier wines with the Virgilius really tickling our fancy. Straight to the store! Yalumba also do a range of magnificent reds including arguably the best Cabernet/Shiraz blend in Australia, the Signature, which is one of Mr WPs favourite wines of all time. 

    An epic day of wine tasting and a great result for us with a bunch of delicious wines to add to the Wine Store.  

    Total Distance: 50km

    Travel Time: 1 hour (excluding stops)

    If you love wine, drinking wine, visiting wineries and giving wine gifts then you're just like us! And we look forward to seeing you here over the coming months and years. Don't hesitate to drop us an email or tweet if you have any ideas or questions, we'd love to hear from you.  

    Your new wino friends

    Mr and Mrs WP

    Here we are on a tour of Margaret River in W.A. (possibly towards the end of the day) sourcing some of our delicious wines!
